NASA portals move closer to launch date

NASA portals move closer to launch date

NASA is making progress on its four-portal e-NASA project, the space agency's chief information officer Lee Holcomb said last week.

A mockup of an agencywide employee portal exists, but the agency has yet to select the technology to power it, Holcomb said.

The intranet page would include agencywide messages, as well as bulletins tailored to each NASA center.

The agency will probably wait until fiscal 2002 to deploy the customizable portal until it is more certain of what the public needs.

A prototype collaborative work portal is online at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. About 50 researchers are trying out the pilot portal, which secures virtual private network connections to remote servers.

The fourth portal, a site for doing business with NASA, is still in the proposal stage, Holcomb said.
